Washington — Columbia Distributing will assume the distribution of Fremont Brewing’s beer throughout the majority of the state of Washington. Founded in 2009 by Matt Lincecum, the Seattle based brewery and taproom has quickly become one of the most popular and fastest growing breweries in the state with its small-batch artisan beers.

“We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Fremont. Their success in one of the most competitive craft markets in the country is a testament not only to the quality of their beers but to their exceptional people,” said Chris Steffanci, President of Columbia Distributing Washington. “Their team stood out to Columbia as one of the best in class, the more we learned about their organization; the more we felt this was a very strong match for us”.

Winner of countless awards, including Rate Beer’s 2014 “Top 100 Breweries in the World,” Fremont’s brews include Universal Pale Ale, Interurban IPA, the best selling craft beer in the state, Summer Ale, and Wandering Wheat as well as numerous seasonal, barrel-aged and special release styles.

Fremont has received nearly as much notoriety for its environmental, social and economic sustainability practices as it has for its beer. Among its many charitable efforts, Fremont is the founder of the national Hops for Heroes project to benefit military veterans and their families as well as the Pink Boots Society, a national organization dedicated to empowering women beer professionals.
